committee was formed to keep an open line of communication and a direct flow of
services through the entire community in the Collins St Area.
Education Committee: Works directly with Parks Elementary School, Sanchez
Elementary School, and Gompers Junior High School Principals and PTO. This
committee will work directly with the Community Committee to ensure the children in the community are active and accessing available resources. The approach is that education is everywhere and used in everything.
